Unser 1. Introcamp von ICYE
Somewhere in Colombia…
After I have spend now 2 weeks in Colombia/Bogotá, a great time came: The ICYE camp, 4 hours from Bogota, a paradise waited for us with open doors and about 40 degrees.
It`s been so hot, that nobody could stop us jumping into the pool, when we arrived
The area was absolutely great. In the evening the pool and the outside-area was lighted completely and the water was perfect! After we arrived, it didn`t take a long time, and everybody was chillin` at the water.
Ok well.. what should I say. I have never smoked with my shisha in a wirlpool, so I had to do that, in any case. A dream came true :) Anyway, here in colombia the people don`t call it „shisha“, they say „Narguile“ or „pipa de agua“.
The first evening was perfect. We all never expected that it will be so cool as we have seen it on the first day! In our group there were people from Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, Slowakia, Spain, Kenya, Italy, Austria and Germany for sure….and of course our Latin-Group
For my personal opinion I like the colombian food (until now) :). Others think different, but in my case I like the meat.. ;)
But anyway.. the food here in the camp is better than the food on the camps in germany, because of MEEEAATT!
The next day first began totally relaaaaxxed at/in the pool.. where else.. at this hard shining sun ;)
(yes.. no stupid ‚ENERGIZER‘ like other camps)
For sure i don`t want that it seems like we absolutely did nothing. We regularly made activities like introducing the own country, Talkin-circles what we expect from the year according to the families and else…
After these activities we made always some breaks and most of us… USED IT like me and Marko ;)
Latinamerika without salsa.. not possible ;). In the fourth night there was our Latino-Night. We were tried learning the basic-salsa steps ;)
Left: Gustavo and Catalina showing how it works correctly ;) (see video `viva tranquila`)
We all never wanted to go.. we all wanted to stay. But the time came.. and these few days also had their end. But our room (Marko, Daniel and me) looked as the same as in the beginning ;)
When the bus arrived in front of the house, we put all our bags in it, and drove back to Bogotà.
In the End
A really great start in colombia. Maybe too good, because all the people didn`t want to go back to Bogotà.
My spanish is still absolutely bad and also it didn`t developed in the last days because the most of the time it was spoken in english or german.
Now all are in Bogotà again… and a 5-weeks long spanish course is waiting now for us.. and for me it is really necessary!
PS: My shisha survived these days !!!
Adios Amigos y Amigas :)
